Arrieta picked up his NL-leading 17th win and improved his ERA to 2.11. Following the...

Following Arrieta’s no-hitter, Cubs hit the road in pajamas

August has been very good for the Chicago Cubs. With one day remaining in the month, the team has compiled a 19-8 record and built a 5.5 game lead for the NL’s second wild-card spot.

Dodgers’ Jake Arrieta didn’t really pitch a no-hitter?

Of course not to take away from Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher’s Jake Arrieta’s lights out Sunday night, but he himself is basically conceding that he didn’t really pitch a no-hitter, and his teammate did not make an error on a hard-hit ball and short hop in the third inning. “I thought it was a hit,” Arrieta said of the play to second baseman Starlin Castro, per USA TODAY...

Jake Arrieta, Cubs celebrate pitcher’s no-hitter in pajamas (photos)

Jake Arrieta pitched an absolute gem in Sunday night’s game against the Dodgers, tossing a no-hitter in a 2-0 victory.

Even Jake Arrieta thought **** Hernandez should have been credited with a hit (Video)

Jake Arrieta pitched a no-hitter in a 2-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday night, but even he believes he caught a nice break from the official scorekeeper.

No-no latest example of Jake Arrieta's breakthrough

No-hitters are random by nature (and not cause they hate ya). Hacky hurlers like Edwin Jackson, Bud Smith, Philip Humber and Bobo Holloman(!) have channeled that magic for a night while Hall of Famers like Greg Maddux and Pedro Martinez have not. The Cubs, long associated with ineptitude, managed to make it 50 years between being no-hit until Cole Hamels finally got them this season...
